Since Covid-19 hit, the world couldn’t look more different. A new normal in work and life will be developed. We’re sure you’re doing your best to care for and protect your business and your projects, but perhaps you are wondering what are the best practices you can use to deal with those uncertainties - project risks!

Project Risk Management includes the processes of conducting risk management planning, identification, analysis, response planning, response implementation, and monitoring risk on a project (PMBOK® Guide, Sixth Edition, page 395) ◊◊. The objectives of Project Risk Management are to increase the probability and/or impact of positive risks and to decrease the probability and/or impact of negative risks, in order to optimize the chances of project success.

Project risk has its origins in the uncertainty present in all projects. Known risks are those that have been identified and analyzed, making it possible to plan responses for those risks. Known risks that cannot be managed proactively, should be assigned a contingency reserve. Unknown risks cannot be managed proactively and therefore may be assigned a management reserve. A negative project risk that has occurred is considered as an issue. (PMBOK® Guide, Fifth Edition, page 310).

This talk introduces the Project Management Institute, PMI®, A Guide for Project Management Body of Knowledge, PMBOK® Guide, seven (7) effective steps on managing project risks that applicable in any project environment.

(1)    Plan Risk Management
        – the process of defining how to conduct risk management activities for a project.
(2)    Identify Risks
        – the process of identifying individual project risks as well as sources of overall project risk and
           documenting their characteristics.
(3)    Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis
        – the process of prioritizing individual project risks for further analysis or action by assessing
          their probability of occurrence and impact as well as other characteristics.
(4)    Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis
        – the process of numerically analyzing the combined effect of identified individual project risks
           and other sources of uncertainty on overall project objectives.
(5)    Plan Risk Responses
        – is the process of developing options, selecting strategies, and agreeing on actions to address
           overall project risk exposure, as well as to treat individual project risks.
(6)    Implement Risk Responses
        – the process of implementing agreed-upon risk response plans.
(7)    Monitor Risks
        – the process of monitoring the implementation of agreed-upon risk response plans, tracking
           identified risks, identifying and analyzing new risks, and evaluating risk process effectiveness
           throughout the project.
